Riot Games was founded in 2006 to revolutionize the way video games are developed, published and supported for players. In 2009, Riot released its debut title, League of Legends, to worldwide acclaim. League has gone on to be the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the rapid growth of esports. Players are the foundation of Riot's community and it’s for them that Riot continues to evolve the League experience, in-game and beyond.
As League enters its second decade, Riot Games continues to evolve the game while delivering new experiences to players with Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, Valorant, League of Legends: Wild Rift and multiple work-in-progress titles. The company is also expanding the world of Runeterra through multimedia projects across music, comic books, board games and the upcoming animated series Arcane.
Founded by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill, Riot is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and has over 2,500 Rioters in more than 20 offices worldwide. Riot has been featured on numerous lists including Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, 25 Best Companies to Work in Technology, 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials and 50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility.
